problem. black caucus said we don't have entitlement problem. leave entitlements alone. nancy pelosi says we still have a revenue problem. don't leave the tax hikes alone. what is amazing these guys don't address a problem. this weekend we get ready to essentially coronate a president, there is no evidence anywhere among anyone in washington they even see a problem. nowhere in any of the inaugural events is so much as passing bought of spending period. more like a four-day spending palooza, celebrates wonder of government and those that benefit from the government the woman who has a job thanks to the auto rescue. the dad's whose family is protecting thanks to the health care law. i think you get the point. austerity isn't the point. more government is. this inaugural weekend is all about a blueprint for revving it up. the white house says it is low-keying the inaugural festivities because of economy, somehow cutting yourself down to two presidential balls doesn't exactly strike me as sacrifice, as much as a slap in the taxpayer's face. to joe perry, marco and chris. not exactly partying.
democrats including nancy pelosi say, no way, there is more revenue can come from this wealthy group. one of them is high-profile golfer looking to evade all of this apparently. >> the news broke this morning. talking about phil mickelson. he is california-based and he has had it with taxes. he says he is going to take dressic action because his tax rate is 62 or 6%. in other words he loses 63 cents on every dollar when you combine higher taxes he has to pay at the federal level with the much higher taxes he has to pay at the california state level. he says he has had enough. we think he is thinking about leaving california. martha: really? wonder where he is going to go? >> texas. martha: lot of choices. texas might be a good one. >> florida. martha: stuart, thank you very much, stuart. he will be a snowbird. bill: good for phil. i overdressed by the way. martha: you're feeling little warm? bill: i'm starting, i'm obsessed --. martha: we're prepared for sking. bill: we heeded the warnings. listened to our people in the weather center. martha: are you blaming them now? bill: absolutely nu
minority leader, nancy pelosi. close at his heels is chuck schumer, something you will all throughout the day. there's a lot of talk in washington about how republicans don't want to be here or how this is not a republican event, this is a democratic event. it is not like that. this formally -- there's former president bill clinton and secretary of state, hillary clinton, there. this is about governance and the presidency. this is not about who won the election, except in the technical sense. this is pomp and circumstance that should be everybody involved in governance as signified in a visible way by the presence of supreme court justices. supreme court justices do not avail themselves of political environments unless they are behaving in a way unbecoming or for justice. to have them there today is a reminder of the power of the united states. >> there are two people that have been fantastic for the country and barack obama. secretary of state, hillary clinton, and of course, bill clinton, former president. he was hired to work re-election for barack obama. >> former president carter
weeks later, he sits down with nancy pelosi and harry reid, passed 780 billion in stimulus, no one having read the bill and the republicans gut it and the speeches were wrong. the president tomorrow is going to sound right, okay? if he follows through on tomorrow's speech, he has a chance to be eisenhower. i don't think he will. i think he wants to be roosevelt in his second term. but that's neither here nor there. if congressional republicans can reach out on issues, take the case of gun control, i think the house judiciary committee ought to hold hearings in chicago. this is the president's hometown. the mayor is the president's former chief of staff. they have very strict gun control. and they are the murder capital of the united states, 516 dead last year. i think having a hearing on what happened before we rush into the next, you know , panacea, would be a useful exercise on a non-partisan basis. >> this idea and the other idea the speaker talked about about members of the black caucus going into republican district is kind of fascinating. part of the problem we have is the di
'm not sure that's right. i think a lot of people are on the left, including nancy pelosi who are wanting-- or invoking the 14th amendment and they're looking at cues he might do that. and i think the cues saying he won't are stronger, jay carney said from the podium, the 14th moment saying it won't work. >> megyn: and telling our viewers, that the democrats, some believe that's a unilateral way that the president could bypass authority that is clearly with the congress, the congress is the only one allowed to raise the debt limit and the president could have some constitutional requirement to do it. >> you're he the lawyer, but my reading of the 14th amendment is that congress shall do this. >> megyn: even the president said i talked to my lawyers about that one and they didn't think it was a good idea. >> right, the president can't violate one constitutional stricture in order to enforce another. i think it's sort of a nonstarter. and what obama is essentially doing, saying it's outrageous for the republicans to have any demands whatsoever and so obama is saying, my only demand is that
of connecticut to talk about how to prevent gun violence. they're meeting today aren't they, jacki with nancy pelosi, et cetera. so everybody's on this gun control thing. >> i don't know the schedule but yeah, it is good that people are moving and there is momentum. that's what we wanted. after the shooting in newtown people were saying enough is enough. we've got to keep the momentum going to get something accomplished. >> stephanie: i haven't seen anything move this quickly. the fact the president is coming out today with actual measures i think is significant. >> it is. we'll see what he can do through executive action and what has to pass through congress. we know that's where everything gets stalled and gummed up, hopefully we can get something substantial done without having to go through capitol hill. >> stephanie: the newtown families are going to be there today i'm told. >> i don't know if it is the newtown families. i think kids who wrote letters to the president being concerned about. >> there are a lot of kids. >> stephanie: i see chiron on tv that there could be some of the newto
and paid for. >> stephanie: that's right. nancy pelosi comments on the nra's ad. >> it was completely inappropriate to bring in the president's children. they have protection because of national security, and it's really inappropriate. >> stephanie: that every president has had. >> and is required. he can't turn it down. >> stephanie: right. representative george miller. >> we'll dealing with people who aren't terribly stable and that kind of ad -- i think is dangerous. >> stephanie: yeah, and representative rush holt. >> it was -- irresponsible and, you know, this is not your grandfather's nra. >> stephanie: yeah, really. it's like they are going out of their way to inflame the situation with these stupid ads. >> president obama and his family live in the house with. that's not fair. >> it's not fair. >> shouldn't we all live in the white house? >> thank you! >> isn't he a big hypocrite pooppy head because we didn't live there too. this message paid for by the large incontinents that run the nra. it is right that president obama has his own airplane and we don't. >>
nancy pelosi's speakership. they're playing -- it's the long play. >> i have a question for you. what do you think the polls would have shown before "madd" was organized to have a campaign against drunk driving about whether you could have an open container in your car or whether it's wise to drive after having a couple shooters in a bar. or whether you're going somewhere and somebody in the back seat has a six-pack. what do you think the polls would say about that? >> all of that matters. and i think what the -- undertone of what the president was saying, he has to marshal this kind of cultural battle. it's not automatic. we can sit here in midtown manhattan where everybody would agree with us. but outside of here, not everybody does. in fact, there is an amazing statistic that shows that 23% of people in our poll call the availability of guns as the cause of gun violence compared with 37% who pointed to parenting and 37% who talked about public culture. >> but rick, i've got to bring this up too. i love that you're bringing up counterintuitive polls. but you're saying polls show that 5
